Residence Hall Lock Out Policy

Students are “locked out” when they have exhausted all possibilities for locating their room key, including waiting for roommates to return home if the key was left in the room. If a student is locked out after 5pm they should call the RA On Call for assistance. A Resident Assistant will meet the student at their room to unlock the door to the room. Students must have their UNC Asheville OneCard or other appropriate picture identification which can be checked to verify that they are the resident of the room in which they are trying to gain access.

  • During normal business hours of 8 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday, students should come to the Housing & Residence Life office, located in Governors Hall, to be given a loaner key.
  • After hours and on weekends, they can contact the RA On Call for their residence hall.
  • If the student cannot locate their key, they must submit a lock change request through the Housing portal. The student will be billed $75 for the lock change.
  • The first lockout of each semester is free of charge. The second lockout costs $5.00, the third is $10.00, and the charge will increase by $5.00 for each additional lockout.

Things to keep in mind

  • Loaner keys are to be returned within 24 hours. If you have left it at home, we will work with you to establish a reasonable deadline date for the return of a loaner key.
